: that is the suspicion that's shared by a lot of republicans taking it, steve, as almost an article of faith of three weeks, a month, that the president actually wants to go over the cliff and i'm not sure if that's true. i have no way of knowing if that's true. i kind of doubt it. if you look at it, the republicans lose a lot of leverage. they have painted themselves in to this corner. there's no denying that fact. john boehner obviously we know what happened last week. sifting through the wreckage of the plan "b." gone back to plan "a," a bill passed by the congress and extending tax cuts for everyone and sent to the senate. they don't expect the senate to take that. use that as a legislative vehicle and what's today? saturday. new year's eve is -- sorry. today's friday. too much holiday cheer. but come on. i mean -- >> he will be working the weekend. >> reporter: i am. oh my god. i don't want to get started on that. but anyway, you know, there's a lot at stake here. and, you know, it is late for this kind of thing to go on. and really, steve, i know you have been on board for this last several day

known, the retirement of vice president kevin martin and the retirement of our paralegal, steve johnson. that most recently happened two weeks ago. we are definitely going to fill the void that steve has left, i hope to fill the void and fill the shoes of kevin martin. we know it's a lot to ask but i can assure you that president delanus and i will make every effort to work with the chief as we have done since being on the executive board of the poa for the last 9 years. but before i do i want to acknowledge kevin martin who has 28 years of service not just with the san francisco police department but the san francisco sheriff's department and especially acknowledge steve johnson, who joined the san francisco police department in 1971, served 30 years and since that time has worked tirelessly along with kevin for the rights of our members and he has worked with every commissioner here. he's going to be a big loss to the poa, he wanted to be here tonight, he could not make it. he is in good health and spirits but i do have letters to each one of the commissioners on behalf of steve.

carnes, steve taylor. >> good afternoon, mr. fonaro. >>> hi, thanks for giving me time to speak. can you hear me? first of all, i want to say that these new options that you have come up with are fabulous if, in fact, they're going to happen. but based on this report that i'm reading, i don't think that they ever will. i don't think february 1st, 2013 is near enough time to take on these new options. and i think that it's funny that february 1st, 2013, is probably two days before you're going to start digging the trench on columbus avenue. also it seems like to me, based on our future or our past business together, that this is an item to a bees us when the real serious matter is paragraph 3, which says, if we can't do options 3 or 4, we're going to do what we had originally intended. i think that's all i had to say. >> thank you, sir. next speaker, please. >> lance carnes, steve taylor, lorenzo petroni. >> mr. carnes. good afternoon, mr. carnes. >>> yes, nice of you to hear us today, board members. i'd like to underline again about the community input and the communication to the neighb
. negotiation have been under way for about an hour. steve handelsman joins us. so far no deal? >> i'm checking. so far the meeting continues, which could be a bad sign, can it? sources here on the hill say in today's meeting president obama planned to be kind of tough, figuring that he has gotten the advantage back to the extent anybody has the advantage this close to the cliff and that he'll push hi original demand, the tack rates rise on income over a quarter million dollars. it's a positive sign, the first meeting since mid-november of the four congressional leaders, democrats and republicans at the white house. called by president obama, house speaker jane boehner, the key figure. >> the fact that he's come back and the four of them are at the table means to me we could come up with some kind of agreement. >> reporter: both sides want a deal to avoid tax hikes that could cost middle-class families $2400. if that rate lasts all of next year. the hangup is still tax hikes on the rich. rich of the rich to tax more, those making over $250,000, the obama proposal, or $400,000, a level senate re
're shaking your head, steve, so you get it first. people think, 12 years of intense pressure on you. 4 years of running, 8 years of serving, into your late 70s. does anybody want to inflict that on their lives at the end of their life basically? your thoughts? >> i think there's a compelling case she doesn't run. 1992 they came to the national stage, and they have been on the national stage since then. for 15 of those 20 years all the way through 2007 she was -- she and her husband were the top targets of the right in this country. she called it the vast right wing conspiracy. there was something to that. it's not that they absolutely will beat her in 2016, i think she could beat them, but it's an issue of do you want to endure that kind of day-to-day attack politics, vicious politics, for another four years, for another eight years, or do you want to say i have proven enough in public life and i want to do something else? >> i don't know. i think she showed no signs of her energy lagging as secretary of state, and that's a pretty tough job, too. i'm not saying it's as vicious as running for
capital, rick santelli, steve guilfoyle on the floor of the exchange with us as well. let's see. let's start with you, mr. grinch. you sell on any strengths, even now, even if we get a deal? >> well, fundamental analysis is thrown out the window. this obviously is a headline-driven market. any time you're hearing about something that's going to take place, any hint at any type of negotiation, any type of a deal, the markets tend to respond. right now i think the markets are calling their bluff right now. we're not expecting a lot out of what's taking place in washington at this moment. here's a thing, guys. even if there is a deal, it's going to be tough. you'll have a knee jerk reaction. markets should be rallying, might be a great opportunity to sell into strength, because when you look behind the curtain of any deal that's going to happen, it's going to be remarkably bad for the economy. >> austerity on the way. >> absolutely. >> whatever we're looking at. >> talking about spending. the whole conversation has been about tax hikes. i mean, you can't -- you're talking about how many

that steve jobs would never intentionally do. they are doing all right with selling, but they have to sustain the sales next year. it will be increasingly difficult. apple is throwing out products fairly rapidly. number tim cook came out compact. his training is much like hp and dell. he was never a steve jobs clone. unfortunately, apple was designed to run under steve jobs. david: steve jobs is gone, tim cook is in. does apple ever recover the historic price levels that we saw for their stock just a few months ago? >> it seems, i mean, if you change enough of a company that has been trading very well that has been doing excellent, making almost no mistakes, it is difficult, the odds are against it. it is always possible, but the odds are against it. the apple today is not the apple that was trading at those highs. david: they are telling me i have to cut short. no po, flop or success? will this phone help them? >> i love the 920. android is looking weak. apple is looking a little bit weaker. those two companies will try to come back next year. the 920 is sold very well. it will be a race to
cliff, as steve baker says, has elements that are commerical. >> congressman, in your response, you link the war machine to the battles at home over domestic spending. could you talk about your efforts to gather with congressman ron paul to demand an inquiry into the justification of drone attacks? >> absolutely. this whole idea of drone wars in proliferated across the world without congress having anything to say about it, without any accountability whatsoever, is against the constitution of the united states and against international law. if any other nation sent a drawn over the u.s., they would have hell to pay, we would see it as an act of war. we are increasingly committing acts of war against other nations -- yemen most recently -- and we're not seeing any accountability at all. congress has a role to play both on the budget side and constitutionally. so we're just trying to get the ministration involved in getting information to congress so we can see the extent of exposure the american people have to this proliferation of war. as news articles have written, and glenn greenwald r

: who is steve rogers who you interview here? >> guest: steve rogers from chicago is a professor at the kellogg school of management at northwestern university. >> host: what was his connection with president obama? >> guest: like many african americans, businessmen and leaders who i interviewed, he was an early backer and supporter of obama. after obama lost a congressional primary to bobby rush in 2000, rush is a former black panther, now a congressman, he was deeply in debt, he went around looking for people to donate money to his cause and steve rogers, very successful businessman at that time before he became a professor gave him $6,000 to pay off some of his personal debts. in return obama promised that he would visit steve rogers and if he won a u.s. senate seat and speak to them so he did win the u.s. senate seat. rogers never heard from him. he called up and asked obama what he come? obama said i am too busy. i am getting phone calls from warren buffett and steve jobs and bill gates and all these important people and rogers said you promised and obama told him you are no

it to a neighbor of obama's. he didn't know whether to say whether that note was ever delivered. >> who is steve rogers, who you also interviewed? >> he is a professor at the kellogg school of management. at northwestern university. >> what was his connection with president obama? >> like many african-american businessmen and leaders, whom i interviewed, he was an early backer and supporter. he was primary to bobby rush in 2000. the former black panther corpsmen. he went around looking for people who donate money to his cause. steve rogers is a very successful businessman before he became a professor. he had $6000, i believe, to pay off some of his personal debt. in return, obama promised that he would visit steve rogers students. and if he won the u.s. senate seat, he did win the u.s. senate seat. rogers never heard from him, so he called him up and asked obama witty comment, and he said, i am too busy. i am getting phone calls from warren buffett and from steve jobs and bill gates in all of these important people. and he said, but you, it's. and obama said, well, you know, promises made by pol
dwellers. i divert from the hill dweller's review on this one. no nor have the project members -- steve has eloquently given you purchase's position. nor as a past commissioner. you're a member of civic design for many years. i am currently a board member at renew sf and that opinion will be given by others. i'm here to support completion of the t-line from bayview to fisherman's wharf. as you say, that's not on your agenda today. that's really what this is all about. we have been working on that since the late 1960s. we have station designs from late 1967 offering the merchants of north beach rapid transit, grade separated service underground. four years ago we cautioned the central subway's engineers to avoid line and station construction that would obviously arouse strong community opposition. i think we put our supervisor david chiu in a very difficult position here. you and we, the residents. specifically we requested but were ignored that the line should terminate beyond washington square. now is the time for you to offer our merchants the low city treasurerance engineering terminatio

again at least. steve has the latest from capitol hill. >> sources are capitol hill say president obama in today's talks feels he has the advantage back and that he will press on his original demand that income taxes rise on earnings over $250,000. it's a positive sign, the first meeting since mid november the four congressional leaders at the white house. called by president obama, house speaker john boehner is a key figure. >> the fact that he has come back to me says that they cannot come up with some kind of agreement. -- that they can come up with an agreement. >> both sides want to avoid middle-class tax cuts. the hang up is the tax hikes on the rich. those making over $250,000 in the obama reposal or $400,000, a level that mitch mcconnell reportedly said he might be able to sel? republicans won the debate shifted. >> the talk about taxes, but what it should be about is what we want to talk about today -- the medicare fiscal cliff. >> no date to cut a day to reform entitlements by tuesday. >> if we do something right now to have long-lasting, adverse effects on economic growth, th

of stock. it's really the volume of the insider buy that declares its sincere steve. we're focusing on buying at the top. nothing more arrogant than when an insider backs up a truck for his own stock, sitting at a 52-week high. they are saying we know we rock, and we're so confident it will keep going higher, we'll buy stock hand over fist, not waiting for a pullback. buying what looks like to be the high. arrogant, sure, but bankable uverse, and there are notable exceptions occupying the wall of shame. let's assume they know what they are doing. not everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt in this business, and after the financial crisis at the end of 2008, i know a lot of people think ceo execs are fraud, crooks, liars, especially those of you who got burned on lehmann brothers. that's the wrong lesson to draw from the crash. healthy skepticism is one thing. a total unwillingness to believe anything positive is something entirely different. if you are going to own stocks, you need to be willing to extend some measure of trust to those who run the companies. getting their stock t
sustain the one-two punch is anybody's question. patti ann: joining us now is steve moore from the "wall street journal." hopefully he can give us some answers. good morning, steve. what is the most immediate impact in we go over the cliff? >> we are talking about january 2nd taxing rising on over a hundred million americans. this is a big sock to the wallet of americans of every income group. let's just talk about the middle class for a minute. for those earning about 45 to 75,000 a year they are looking at paying somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,500 a year more in taxes. it's not just the warn buffets and bill gates that will be hit by tax increases. the other part of the cliff that we don't talk that much about is the automatic spending cuts would take effect starting on january 2nd, an 8% reduction in major spending categories, national defense, many of what we call the domestic discretionary programs would also be hit. this is a big fiscal wallop to the economy and a lot of economists believe it could cause a double-dip recession. patti ann: on the other hand we are hearing from
is on the independent line from colorado. caller: good morning, steve. i listened to it the myopic dogma in this segment over and over. the only people i can blame on this are the american people. the people who sit here and listen to these guys that are extremists and and they vote him into office -- them into office. i hear people say let's get rid of epa. if you look at how much epa takes out of our budget, that's like worrying about nothing gary people need to turn off the tv and start studying more. crack some books. look at economic spirit trickle- down economics does not work. name a country where it has worked? maybe estonia. but it's not working incr greece. i heard a great saying that says when time gets tough, everyone is a keynesian. turn off the tv. not c-span of course. but turn off the news channels that are just cramming this stuff, and get involved in this before you formulate an opinion. i think we would be voted into office smarter, better people that are not tea party extremists. how about if on the democratic side grover norquist had said never cut any spending? i'm going to sign a
without steve jobs and a company that's trying to prove under a new c-e-o that it can still invent things we didn't even know we needed that we would buy faster than anything has technology before. number nine-- the u-s stock market. despite all those worries about the fiscal cliff and maybe slower growth in the u-s economy, the stock market has had a great year. too bad you missed out. the smart money has been in the market. the rest of us have been worried about the fiscal cliff. number eight-- facebook's i-p-o. hundreds of millions of people like facebook, but investors did not on its first day as a public company. trading glitches at the nasdaq and questions about the company's ability to make money on mobile users pummeled the stock, which has yet to climb its way back to its i-p-o price. number seven-- mother mayer. the new c-e-o of yahoo, who announced that she was just going to take a two-week maternity leave as she tried to turn this company around. 37 years old, looks like a mother's touch was just exactly what yahoo needed. number six-- mother nature. an intense drought in the
less than they otherwise should be or would be. >> and we talked to "the wall street journal's" steve moore a little while ago and i asked him about the psychological effect if we go off the fiscal cliff. i want you to hear what he said. >> i talk to small businessmen and women all the time. they say, we're not hiring now. we're canceling a lot of our plans to make new expenditures, which you need to do if you want a vibrant economy. and we're really seeing the impact in the stock market the last couple of weeks. so this is not a good way to run a railroad. and the economy is already taking a hit because of all this turmoil in washington. >> you agree with that, that we've already seen the impact of not having a deal to avoid this cliff? >> i don't think we've seen all of the impact. undoubtedly, stephen moore is correct that the stock market is reacting, particularly over the last couple of days. but most people, most institutions, most companies, most consumers assume that there will be some sort of a deal or if there's not a deal, at least by monday, then there will be a deal withi
